CLEVELAND, John Fitch, journalist, born in Clymer, Chautauqua County, New York, 4 February, 1819; died in New York City, 9 October, 1876. His family were neighbors of the parents of Horace Greeley, and, after receiving a liberal education and learning the printer's trade, he went to New York and obtained a place on the" Tribune," which had been founded by Greeley three years before. In 1846 he married Mr. Greeley's sister Esther. He was at different times Albany correspondent of the "Tribune," editor of the weekly and semi-weekly editions, and news editor. He was a stockholder in the paper from 1848. In 1862 he became an assessor of internal revenue, and in 1869 was transferred to the district embracing the financial institutions of Wall street, but resigned in 1871 and became financial editor of the "Tribune," and subsequently compiler of the "Tribune Almanac."
